WHY GO WITHOUT?

The purchase or sale of a property requires a great deal of technical knowledge. One must manage significant transactional, financial and legal aspects, in addition to knowing how to negotiate effectively. This presents a lot of points to cover, and that's why you need an expert!

As a Quebec real estate broker, I have had professional real estate brokerage training covering law, property evaluation, real estate mathematics, and contract writing. I also passed an entrance exam for the profession in order to get my certificate of practise issued by the Organisme d'autoréglementation des courtiers immobiliers du Québec (OACIQ).

With a real estate broker, you're protected!

Fonds d’indemnisation du courtage immobilier

Each real estate broker contributes to a real estate brokerage compensation fund. The fund has the power to indemnify consumers in the event a problem occurs as part of a real estate transaction, whether through fraud, dishonest transactions or a misappropriation of funds or property. To learn more, visit www.indemnisation.org.

Professional liability insurance

Real estate brokers must purchase professional liability insurance, which offers additional financial protection to consumers in case of fault, error, omission, or negligence. This insurance covers both civil claims and civil lawsuits.

Real estate broker compensation

A real estate broker only receives compensation once the property deed is signed. The amount a broker receives as part of a real estate transaction is established with the client at the signing of the brokerage contract, but is only paid out once the transaction is concluded.

Commonly known as "commission", compensation does not go directly into the pockets of the real estate broker. If a listing broker was involved in the sale, the selling broker must give over a portion of the compensation.

Selling a property involves many financial, legal and technical intricacies. Doing business with a real estate broker helps you avoid numerous problems during one of the most important transactions of your life. What is more, you only pay for results, since a broker has to make a sale in order to receive compensation.
